Nepal Guide info (Nepal Planet Treks and Expedition ) Health and Insurance advise for 2017/2018
Traveling in the desolate mountainous regions is always a risky job. Weather usually remains unpredictable in these regions and the risk of avalanche and natural calamities always prevails. It is equally likely that you might be the victim of High altitude sickness. Also, there exists the chance of physical injuries while following the difficult route. In these cases, you will have to bear the cost of expensive emergency treatment and rescue if you have not already made travel insurance with any of the secure travel insurance companies. Major costs that will be covered by travel insurance include helicopter rescue cost and treatment costs.
So, Nepal Planet Treks & Expedition (Nepal Guide Info) advise you to get insured before joining the trekking package. Read well all the terms and conditions of the insurance company that is offering travel insurance and notify them of the trekking itinerary and activities that we are offering at Nepal Planet Treks & Expedition ( Nepal Guide info ) so that complication may not arise in future if in case you need to claim your insurance. Your insurance should cover emergency helicopter rescue and medical expenses if you are taking the climbing and expedition package. If you are intending to join the trekking in urban areas, insuring for helicopter rescue will not be compulsory. Since Helicopter Rescue is impossible in Tibet, you need not insure yourself for helicopter rescue while trekking in Tibet. It is better if your insurance policy covers such conditions like trip cancellation because your deposits will not be refunded in case of cancellation.
Remember to bring the insurance certificate along with you if you are insured.

The Dhaulagiri massif in Nepal extends 120 km (70 mi) from the Kaligandaki River west to the Bheri. This massif is bounded on the north and southwest by tributaries of the Bheri River and on the southeast by Myagdi Khola.
Dhaulagiri I is the seventh highest mountain in the world at 8,167 metres (26,795 ft) above sea level. It was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by a Swiss/Austrian/Nepali expedition.
 
The mountain’s name is (dhaulāgirī) in Nepali. This comes from Sanskrit where (dhawala) means dazzling, white, beautiful[3] and गिरि (giri) means mountain. Dhaulagiri I is also the highest point of the Gandaki river basin.
 
Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545 ft) is 34 km. east of Dhaulagiri I. The Kali Gandaki River flows between the two in the Kaligandaki Gorge, said to be the world’s deepest.[citation needed] The town of Pokhara is south of the Annapurna, an important regional center and the gateway for climbers and trekkers visiting both ranges as well as a tourist destination in its own right.
